Enjoy the Outdoors
Many event organizers recommend outdoor meetings to enhance their clients' satis-faction. 
Outdoor events after dark can be especially motivating, allowing the use of fire, illumination and even fireworks to make a impact.  Tents and awnings can create an intimate feel and are very useful if the weather changes suddenly. Take advan-tage of the great outdoors during your next meeting or event. 
Make It Fun!
Even in a great location, it takes work to pull your team together and make your event truly motivating. Team-Building exercises can stimulate, motivate and otherwise break up the ordinary. Turn your next meeting into something memorable. Let IVI DMC² help you plan great activities for your group.
